There is no minimum salary on the PGA tour. There is no injured reserve. If you can’t play, you don’t get paid. Golfers who make enough cuts and stay on the money list can play for 20 years or more — unless they are forced to hang up their spikes prematurely due to injury or sickness.
DarrasLaw is available to represent professional golfers nationwide in claims for career-ending disability. Upper echelon athletes in many professional sports turn to us as the leading disability insurance firm in the United States. If the insurance company is refusing to honor your privately purchased disability policy or endlessly delaying the claim, our disability lawyers can step in to assert your rights.
Experienced Advocates for PGA Disability Insurance Claims
Golf is not a contact sport, but the grueling years of practice and playing do take a toll on knees, hips, shoulders, wrists and other joints. Sometimes a promising or productive career is ended by golf-related injuries (Greg Norman, Ken Venturi) and sometimes by medical conditions or tragic accidents (Babe Zaharias, Paul Azinger, Payne Stewart).
Insurance companies are always happy to extend individual disability insurance to high earners for a hefty premium. Yet when the policyholder files an actual claim, insurers will try every tactic to void the agreement or minimize their exposure. The insurance companies earn interest simply by stalling the release of claim benefits for months, not caring that the insured is struggling financially.
Frank Darras and the trial lawyers of DarrasLaw can intervene to compel timely payment of your high-stake disability claims. Our proven track record in insurance litigation provides additional incentive to insurers to settle out of court, but we do take cases to trial and appeal.
